“God Alone Knows”, Damien Hirst : A clever marriage of science and religion; an inventive use of preserved sheep carcasses in this instantly recognisable scene.

Contemporary art has always been somewhat of a hit and miss for me. When the contemporary man has neither time nor patience for frescoes or friezes, art can only seek to shock, intrigue, and scandalise; something to hold your attention just long enough till the next big thing comes along.

Could this be the natural evolution of art or merely symptomatic of our time?
